Australian firm Minter Ellison has hired two tax specialists from Ernst & Young to propel its tax practice into the premier league
Mark Green and Alan Kenworthy have both joined the Melbourne office as partners. Green was previously a senior tax partner in Ernst & Young's corporate group and deputy managing partner of the tax practice. He handles transactional tax issues in corporate M&A and general tax advice for corporations and government entities. He will join as head of Minters' revenue practice in the Melbourne office. Kenworthy, who concentrates on tax law advice for government and corporates, will join the Melbourne office and will answer directly to Green. Minters is Australia's second-largest law firm, but in the second tier for its tax practice. However, it has a strong local capability spread throughout its regional offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. Key clients include Allianz, the Australian Stock Exchange, BMW Australia Finance and Cable & Wireless Optus.
